This step by step diy project is about shed double doors plans. This article is PART 3 of the 16×16 gable shed project, where I show you how to make the double doors for the shed. In PART 3 I also show you how to attach the trims to the shed, so you get the job done in a super nice manner. Take a look over the rest of my woodworking plans, if you want to get more building inspiration.
When buying the lumber, you should select the planks with great care, making sure they are straight and without any visible flaws (cracks, knots, twists, decay). Investing in cedar or other weather resistant lumber is a good idea, as it will pay off on the long run. Use a spirit level to plumb and align the components, before inserting the galvanized screws, otherwise the project won’t have a symmetrical look. If you have all the materials and tools required for the project, you could get the job done in about a day.

Building 6′ double shed plans
First of all, you need to install the ceiling to the covered porch area. You should secure the 3/4″ plywood sheets into place with 1 5/8″ screws, every 8″ along the bottom rafters. Leave no gaps between the sheets, if you aim for a professional result.
Next, fit the 1×4 trims to the front and back of the shed. Cut both ends at 15 degrees, by making 75 degree with a miter saw. Fit the trims into place with 1 1/2″ brad nails.
Attach 1×4 trims to the corners of the shed. Align the edges with attention and lock them into place with 1 1/2″ brad nails.
Attach 2×4 slats around the door opening. Use 2 1/2″ screws to secure the trims into place tightly. Leave no gaps between the components for a professional result.
Use the pieces that you cut out previously when installing the siding to the front wall, as door panels. Smooth the edges thoroughly with sandpaper.
Attach the 2×4 trims to the doors. Align everything with attention and insert 2″ screws to lock them into place tightly.
Fit the diagonal braces to the doors, so you can enhance their look.
Hang the doors into the opening and use hinges and a latch to secure everything together tightly.
Take care of the finishing touches, Fill the holes and the gaps with putty and smooth the surfaces with 120-220 grit sandpaper. Apply a few coats of paint or stain to protect the components from decay and to enhance the look of the shed with porch.
